Are Selfies Destroying Relationships?

March 13, 2017

Selfies have taken over our social media feeds. And get this, it's estimated that there is an average of 93 million selfies taken per day around the World! Snap, snap!

Some people hate selfies and can't stand those who constantly post them. Other cannot stop taking them throughout the day and post multiples on their facebook, twitter, and Instagram accounts. We are so obsessed with taking selfies that the Chainsmokers made an entire song about it in 2014!

But you may want to slow your roll on all the selfie-snapping because a new study has found that all those solo photos could be destroying your relationship. People take these pictures for all different reasons. Some are just obsessed with themselves. Others are looking for compliments or want to show off their cool location or their new makeup look.

We've already learned that social media can have a negative impact on our romantic relationships because they can make our partners jealous. Well, the same thing happens with all those selfies. Essentially, the more selfies you take and post, the more jealous your partner becomes. In the long run, all those selfies will start to break down your relationship. 

Here are some more things you may not know about selfies:

-The average millennial will take 25,700 in their lifetime.

-Females aged 16 to 25 spend five hours taking selfies per week.

-50 people have died trying to take a selfie since 2014.

So before you snap that morning selfie and that evening selfie, you may want to think twice.
